About the station

This guide to Genova Piazza Principe station explains what to look out for when using the station, how to access the city centre and how to reach picturesque Boccadasse.

Genova Piazza Principe is one of Italy’s most impressive train stations, by virtue of the fact that it’s one of the few major stations in Italy, not to have been re-built in the 1930s in the prevalent Art-Deco style.


The tracks/platforms/binari, that the majority of long distance trains will depart from/arrive at, are linked to the main entrance by two passage ways that run beneath the lines.

From the platforms/binari in the main (above ground) part of the station, one of these passage ways is accessed by stairs and a lift and the other is accessed by escalators and stairs.

However, the passage way that has lift access to/from the platforms/binari only has one escalator up into the main hall at the station - when we there it was working in the up direction.
